Val’s coaching felt like a very organic process, a natural journey to better perceiving oneself. Even from before we started our first face to face session I felt empowered to look inward and evaluate how I could work better.

Each session with Val felt like a turning point, her subtle direction and ability to identify the cornerstones of my personality, and strengths & weaknesses whilst keeping the focus on how I can get out of my own way to achieve the goals I want to set.

By the end of each session I felt I had gained positive insight and had a clearer direction on where to focus my attention in every aspect of my work and home life to be more effective and efficient.

I would highly recommend undertaking coaching with Val, her ability to quickly make the experience a positive and trusting one whilst keeping the momentum moving naturally made it a highly effective developmental process.

Working with Vallerie has been a positive, valuable and rewarding experience. I trust her completely which means I can be more honest with myself and work more deeply. The coaching work continues to offer rich insights and increased self awareness; combined with this though, Vallerie helps me to set realistic mini-goals which work towards the big ones. As I progress I am witnessing myself change and achieve them. This is awesome! She has shown me I have the power to change and has provided effective skills to support me in this. There have been unexpected positive results as the changes ripple out into my life, results that I hadn’t felt were possible, allowing me to experience tangible increases in self belief.

Vallerie has a real skill in listening, really listening, and it is a treasure to be on the receiving end of such subtle skill. She also sincerely challenges any limiting thoughts/statements in a compassionate way which can reveal powerful insights and offer a chance for me to rethink my cognitions and redundant concepts. I am extremely grateful to be working with Vallerie and I would highly recommend her to my peers, friends and family.

Warning … long review but 100% absolutely genuine and deserving! I had the complete privilege of working with Val who was a senior manager of a large successful sales team. Val was much more than a manager, she was a true leader in every sense and such an integral part of the continued success of our team. Her confidence, poise and professionalism when leading our morning meetings naturally drew her listeners in. She has such a natural ability to engage people and just make you want to listen and learn!

What I appreciated mostly was Val’s genuine care and concern to stop whatever she was doing no matter how busy she was and just listen to you with full eye contact. She made you feel important and always strived to bring out the best in you. This is what truly sets Val apart!

She treated her team with such dignity and respect which always set her high above the rest of the management. I will always remember and be thankful for the experiences I had working with Val and will forever be grateful for the positive attributes she instilled in me . Not just bettering my own personal management style but the growth she gave me as an individual in my everyday life. Val inspires and is born to lead and inspire others. I am 100% confident she will have much success in this new journey and will lead you to your highest potential 🌟

All the best Val , you have found your calling!!

Dr. Karen Putt

Field Applications Specialist

In every coaching session with Val I had at least one “Aha” moment. She always takes the time to listen and helps me to look at my thoughts and behaviors from a different perspective. Both during and in between sessions, she provides guidance on how to create new habits and supports me towards reaching my goal.

Highly recommend having Val as a Performance Coach!

Dr. Salvatore Simmi

Senior Scientist

Vallerie has Coached me for 6 months and it has been a great experience.

She immediately made me feel comfortable in speaking to her establishing a very trustful relationship. During our meetings, she impresses me in the way she listens and records not only my words but also my body language.

She is capable of collecting information and condense them to offer constant new stimuli that challenge my mind. At the end of every meeting,

I feel I have discovered something new about myself and totally empowered to face a new challenge that will take me closer to reaching my goals.

Vallerie is helping me in developing aspects of myself that are essential to reach my personal and career goals faster and I would definitely recommend her Coaching to others.

Dr. Yaoyao Chen

Senior Scientist

I have had a few coaching sessions with Val during the last a couple of months, and the experience is transformational. She is open, patient and sincere, and that allowed me to trust her instantly from the very beginning.

She never directly gave me answers to my complex challenges in career. Instead, she used insightful questions to make me think hard and help me dissect the situation to find solutions.

Through the coaching sessions with Val, I have not only got to know myself a bit better but also acquired the useful thinking tools when facing new challenges in life. Besides, Val is very easy to talk to, which made the coaching journey incredibly enjoyable.

I would recommend Val to anyone who needs coaching without reservation.

Director, Regulatory Affairs

I have really enjoyed her coaching program and the flexibility it allows to be completed at your own pace while providing the right amount of feedback along the way.

Julia (McChrystal) Coghlan

Sales Manager

I am so happy that I took the opportunity to use coaching as a way to achieve my career oriented goal.

Val was able to help me recognise things that I had perceived as challenges from an alternate perspective and this has helped me in all aspects of my career and personal life.

She was patient, kind but at the same time honest and able to be candid.
